Bantu is used as a general label for 300-600 ethnic groups in Africa of speakers of Bantu languages, distributed from Cameroon east across Central Africa and Eastern Africa to Southern Africa. Estimated at approximately 335 million (2007), these ethnic groups form about a third of Africa's total population.

The Bantu family is fragmented into hundreds of individual groups, none of them larger than a few million people (the largest being the Zulu with some 10 million). The Bantu language Swahili with its merely 5-10 million native speakers is of super-regional importance as tens of millions fluently command it as a second language.
